Welcome to Creations by AR's Beach Hop! This month I have two new templates to get you in the mood for summer!  The first one is a fun Sandy Beach Bucket that stands at 4 inches tall (without the handle) and has a 3-inch diameter opening. This would have made a great party favor for my girls' end of school year parties when they were younger!

The second template is a matching 3D Beach Bucket Card with a "sandy" stand that folds flat to fit nicely into an A2 size envelope.  Add a sentiment or photo to the removable shovel and you have a really cute invitation!

Be One of the 2 Winners!

Visit the blogs of each of the AR Girls listed below and leave a comment to qualify for the random drawing.  Another winner will be chosen randomly from the comments left on our AR Facebook Page  so make sure to visit FB!

Comments are accepted until Saturday, June 14, 12:00 noon Eastern and winners will be announced June 15 on our AR Facebook Page and on Creations by AR website. Ready to see more? Click away:

Welcome to AR's April Release and Blog Hop featuring the brand new EASEL TOP BOX template! I designed this storage box to help organize recipes and I also wanted a convenient way to display the card. Well, here it is… a storage box with a built-in easel! But instead of making a recipe box, I ended up making a vacation photo box to organize photos that my daughter and I took while vacationing in the Philippines two summers ago.  The dividers came in handy to separate the different cities we visited.  One day, I'll make this box for my recipes!

The other AR Girls have created their version of the EASEL TOP BOX and I can't wait to see what they have made. Click on the links of the other designers below and leave each one a comment to automatically be entered in the drawing to receive this new template.  Comments are also welcome on our Facebook Page.  You have until Friday, April 11, to leave your comments.  One comment will be randomly chosen and announced on Creations by AR Shop and on our Facebook Page Saturday the 12th.

Enjoy the hop and I hope you get inspired!  Thank you for stopping by today!

Welcome to Creations by AR Spring Blog Hop! 
In most parts of the country, it's hard to imagine that Spring is just a few days away, especially with the bitter cold weather some folks have been experiencing… but not us in warm California (as I'm typing this, it's a lovely 84ºF outside)!  I hope our Spring Blog Hop will give you a glimpse of the beautiful upcoming season!

I have two brand new sets this month.  The first one is the Carrot Patch, which has a removable insert that holds three carrot boxes perfectly! The white picket fence with grass surrounding it makes an adorable favor box or display.  Notice my customized sign post?  I thought it gave it some fun!

The second template for this month is the Standing Cross.  When designing this project, I thought about Jesus and how he gave His life for us on the cross.  As a child, I used to listen to a song called "I Believe in a Hill Called Mount Calvary," sung by the Heritage Singers (seen here on YouTube). Trying not to make the "hill" too large, my "hill" ended up looking like a stand instead of a hill.  Oh well...

If you'd like to receive one of these new templates, just "hop" on over to each of the blogs listed below to see what the other AR Girls have created using these sets and leave each of them a comment on what you think of their projects. Comments are also accepted on the AR Facebook Page.  A random comment will be chosen to receive their choice of either the Carrot Patch or the Standing Cross.

Comments are accepted until Friday, March 14 (12 noon Eastern) and the random winner will be announced on March 15 on the AR Facebook Page and on Creations by AR website.

Enjoy our hop and hopefully you'll find inspiration along the way!
